DETAILED FORECAST

The pattern of hot and humid weather will continue into the start of the week, StormCenter 7 Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs said.

Skies will clear through the evening, which will still be mild and muggy with temperatures falling back through the 70s, she said. Overnight will not see much change, with lows in the upper 60s.

Labor Day: Mostly sunny skies for the holiday, which will be hot and humid with highs near 90 degrees, but it will feel like the lower to middle 90s.

“Limiting your time outdoors and drinking plenty of water is advised,” Vrydaghs said.

Monday night, scattered clouds arrive, but it will stay dry. Temperatures will hold near 70 degrees overnight into early Tuesday morning.

Tuesday: This will be the final day of the uncomfortable hot and humid weather before a cold front brings changes for the middle and end of the week. Skies will be partly cloudy in the afternoon with highs around 90.

Wednesday: An approaching cold front will bring scattered storms to the area. A few storms could be on the stronger side with heavy rain, gusty winds and lightning. It will still be humid, but not as hot with highs in the middle 80s.

Thursday: It will be partly sunny but less humid. A few more passing showers or storms are possible. Highs reach into the upper 70s to low 80s.

Friday: Mostly cloudy, breezy and mild weather is expected with highs in the middle 70s. A chance exists for a few passing showers or storms.
